Touratech 35-Liter Zega Pannier Special Set (includes Black Mounting Racks) -
2005-13 Air/Oil-Cooled BMW R1200GS, 2006-13 R1200GS Adventure*
* This system comes with it's own mounting
racks - they replace the optional OEM BMW system on your 2006-13 R1200GS Adventure.
best luggage for your BMW R1200GS or R1200GS Adventure, the Touratech
pannier system features extremely strong, lightweight aluminum panniers that
are built in Germany and mount on the strongest racks in the industry. Black
18mm diameter steel tube racks with 2mm thick side walls that form a rectangular "hoop" on
either side of the bike to attach the panniers to. Our panniers are better
engineered, better tested and better manufactured than any other company's.
Proven by famous world travelers like Helge Pedersen and like Ewan McGregor
and Charlie Boorman of Long Way 'Round fame.
The pannier boxes are a natural aluminum metallic in color
and have a lift off lid plus a wide, square shape that makes packing and unpacking
(and pulling stuff out from the bottom along the way) a cinch. The high clearance
of the boxes means you won't risk touching down a corner during fast riding
or bottoming out the boxes if you are trying to go through deep sand.
Both the 35-liter and 41-liter panniers (see Recommended
Items below) mount such that they are narrower than the handlebars of
the bike, with an overall width of the 35-liter special system of 35 inches,
(The 41-liter special system is 38.5 inches.) The lid closes with two very
strong latches and when closed the top edge of the box seats into a silicone
seal in the lid that results in a completely water-tight box.
Touratech's testers and customers have routinely driven these
panniers through pouring monsoons, Midwest summer downpours and raging
rivers and emerged with nary a drop to be found inside. To accommodate the
muffler on the left side of the bike the left side box has a cut-out machined
into the aluminum (reducing capacity by about 5-liters) and the rack wraps
around the muffler to make the box sit as close to the subframe of the bike
as possible and give the bike a symmetrical, even look. Since the pannier sits
so close to the muffler Touratech has developed an exclusive heat shield, that
attaches to the box and reflects and directs the hot exhaust gases away from
the pannier. This means you can load the left box with anything you want, be
it ice cream or a nylon windbreaker and the heat from the exhaust will not
affect the contents.
The rack that holds the panniers attaches at existing frame points on
the bike and does not require any drilling or cutting to install. The panniers
attach to the racks at 4 points using heavy-duty composite and steel mounting
brackets that offer very secure fitting and can be quickly released to take
the boxes off. Thanks to Touratech's innovative cross-braced rack system the
racks act like a subframe on the rear of the bike. In the event of a tip over
or accident the pannier boxes cannot be pushed inwards.
Touratech panniers do not crack like plastic luggage, they are waterproof
and offer superior protection for your bike. The loop handles on
the lids are ideal for lashing down a dry bag or other supplies. They install
without any cutting or drilling and do not require any reconfiguration of
the turn signals. If you are planning to go around your state,
country or the world Touratech panniers will take you and all your stuff
there and back!
